KC Chiefs Roster Cuts: Live Thread


The Kansas City Chiefs will be announcing their roster cuts very soon and news is already strarting to trickle out. Keep an eye on this thread as we will update it throughout the evening.

Here is what we know so far:

-Adam Techer is reporting that RB Nate Eachus has made the 53-man roster! Teicher cites the player’s agent as the source.

-Teicher also reports that rookie CB Dequan Menzi is heading to IR. Remember, the new IR rules mean one player can come back later in the season.

The news that Eachus has made the team could mean RB Cyrus Gray is also heading to IR. Both Gray and Menzi have been injured most of the preseason. Teams will often stash guys they don’t have room for on IR for a year. The Chiefs, fearful he will be swiped from the practice squad, may do that with Gray. Nothing concrete yet. Stay tuned.

Update: (4:50 PM)

-Chiefs have reportedly released LB Leon William, says Aaron Wilson.

-Chiefs have released FB Patrick DiMarco.

-Chiefs may have released S Donald Washington. Below is his last tweet:
